One of the major tourist resorts in Turkey is Marmaris which rivals Kusadasi in the West Coast.
Marmaris however has more to offer when it comes to nature and greenery. There you can explore more forests and natural beauty but the historical site in Kusadasi is richer than that in Marmaris.
The name of the resort comes from the Turkish saying "Mimari as", which means ‘ hang the arhcitect’. When travellers go on Marmaris holidays they soon witness the high rise holiday appartment buildings and only then they understand the meaning of this Turkish saying.
Getting to Marmaris is easy, just hop on a plane to Dalaman airport which is roughly about (90km) away and take a shuttle from there to Marmaris.
Marmaris is great as a starting point for excursions to the many popular sights of the coast.While there you need to make sure that you visit stunning Günlük and Turunc by boat.
If you are based in some of the other popular Turkish resort then Marmaris is also easily accessible as a day trip destination from the Island of Rhodes, there are fast ferries operate daily and throughout the day, and the journey is less than an hour’s time.
The Local Tourist Board operates a free shuttle service in to town from the docks, they offer a tour to help you explore the area, promote it and hopefully return again in the future.
Shopping in Marmaris, Turkey
If you do plan to shop in Marmaris, then we advise that all visitors need to be clued up and prepared. Vendors, in the local bazaars, can be annoying with their haggling (although this is illegal), and be warned that in not just Marmaris but the whole of Turkey there are a large number of fake designer goods on sale.
So if you fancy a bargain Rolex watch or a Gucci dress, then be prepared for them to be fake. However, it has to be said that that these fake goods are usually worth buying in Turkey as the fakes are good quality!
